Aranui 3 Offers Passenger Freighter Cruises in the Marquesas

The "Aranui 3" is a mixed passenger/cargo vessel that operates between Tahiti and the Marquesas.

She offers comfortable, air-conditioned accommodations for about two hundred passengers. Passengers can sunbathe on deck, swim in the pool, or enjoy exotic tropical drinks while the Aranui 3 sails her way among the islands of the Marquesas.
Accommodations classes are Suites, Deluxe, Standard and C Class. Standard C Class are shared accommodations. The ship offers comfortable accommodations, but passengers should not expect a standard cruise ship experience, the ship is a combination passenger ship and freighter, one should expect clean, comfortable accommodations, adequate friendly service, good local cooking and fewer entertainment options than larger ships.
The ship sails on 14 days adventure cruise in the French Polynesia, Marquesas islands. The journey begins at Tahiti to Fakarava, Ua Pou, Nuku Hiva, Hiva Oa, Fatu Hiva, Tahuata, Ua Huka, Rangiroa and back to Papeete.
The vessel operates under the French flag, and her crew are all Polynesian, primarily Marquesans.
